About Course

A Missionary is a member of a religious group sent into an area to do evangelism or ministries of services, such as education, literacy, social justice, health care and economic development. The word “mission” originates from 1859 when the Jesuits sent members abroad derived from the Latin missioner (nom. Mission), meaning “act of sending” or metered, meaning to send”.

The word was used in light of its biblical usage; in the Latin translation of the Bible, Christ used the word when sending disciples to preach in his name. The term is commonly used for Christian missions but can be used for any creed or ideology.

A Christian missionary can be defined as “one who is to witness across cultures”. The Lausanne Congress of 1974, defined the term, related to Christian missions as “to inform a viable indigenous church-planting movement.
